    Default What do you believe?

    I think we can all agree that a propensity for belief in the divine, the
    supernatural, call it what you may is becoming increasingly frowned upon
    in today's modern secular society.

    I'm not particularly religious although I am a regular church goer and
    am often to be seen in the lytchett gate hobnobbing it with the vicar
    after he's deklivered a particularly thought provoking sermon.

    I do, however concede, that I attend church more to maintain my social
    standing in the village rather than to fulfil any spiritual obligations set out by Christian doctrine.

    That said, I do believe in spririt and I do believe in angels and I often feel there is a spirit guardian watching over me as I wend my way
    through life.

    The militant secularism on display in modern Britain doesn't rest easy
    with me. *I often wonder how those recently bereaved feel when they are
    belittled by the likes of Richard Dawkins just because they seek comfort in the belief that their loved one has gone on to a better place.

    I also think there are more people in Britain with spiritual beliefs
    than the media would have you believe. *They may not follow any
    prescribed religion but the desire to satisfy a spritual yearning is
    evidenced by the growth of adherents of diciplines such as Kabbalah and
    Buddhism.

    So, where do you fit into the spectrum of faith?

    I have faith in my belief that you are a particularly tedious sockie.

    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    You are inconsistant.
    The title talks about belief, the last line talks about faith.
    These are not the same thing

    apart from that, a good effort. well done

    A little churlish perhaps.

    Now if everyone could take this view the world would be a much happier place

    On the matter of religion I had the Jehovah’s turn up the other day: I mentioned that I now require regular blood transfusions, they responded “its gods will for you to join him them” oh..right then..

    I believe that if I stare long enough out of the window that the woman across the road will one day forget to pull her curtains before getting undressed.
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    I am an atheist an attend church on most Sundays because my wife wants to go with the kids but cannot attend the ceremony and watch them at the same time so I play with the children and day dream when they are in their groups and she keenly listens to the confirmation bias, argument from ingnorance, no true Scotsman and assorted other falacies.
